UO buys downtown building for Art + Design faculty studios

In 2018, Art and Product Design faculty are getting new research studios—in downtown Eugene. The move will create “a kind of think tank for art and design,” said Laura Vandenburgh, head of the School of Art + Design.

The building was purchased in July, and faculty will move into the renovated space by Fall 2018.

“Bringing these incredibly talented art and design faculty members together will create an energy that will be palpable, and I believe the new facility, which will include an art gallery, will be a wonderful asset for the entire community,” said Jayanth Banavar, provost and senior vice president.
